The Young Guns Have Arrived in the NFL !!

Recommended Posts

It has been years since all the big name QB's have been dominating the NFL & all the fans have been routing for or against them for the last 10 or so years but i think the changing of the guard to the young guns has come ! 

 

The QB's drafted in the last couple of seasons & those QB's that have sat in the shadows learning behind some of the greats has pointed to that Mahomes , Garopolo & others have come to stay . 

 

Given that all of this years draft picks are starting now (we know who they are) & it's only week 3 of the season that's 7 QB changes this season in it self then add the possibility that Chad Kelly is one play away from starting & who ever else you can think to add goes to show the time has come for the change !! 

 

One other thing there are more too if they learn to stop screwing up & just play the game & learn how to stop goofing up could also add to the addition of new long term QB's Winston being one of them . 

 

Brady, Big Ben, Rogers, Matty Ice, Flacco & more are not going to be around for at most maybe 2 more seasons well maybe more than 2 but it's closer to that than further away but it could allow more young guns to pick up where they left off . 

 

I could see a couple of the older guys leaving in retirement after this season (i don't see any of them leaving at half time though) seeing as some have muttered those words in the recent past it could be a push but it could happen, do you see any others than those i have mentioned leaving or being put out to pasture soon ??

It does feel like a changing of the guard, but it won’t be all at once. You left out Brees and Rivers, and who knows who else. Let’s just pray we have OUR guy for the next 15-20 years! (That used to be 10-12, but this is the new NFL.)

This years QBs class could be one of the best we have seen in a very long time.

We can call it a  true change of guard when younger QBs step up and win Super Bowls (or make it to them)...When you see the playoffs, it still filled with the Brady's, Ben's, Rivers, Brees etc. There were a lot of promise with  Rodgers, Wilson, Ryan and Cam took their teams to the SB, but have not had a more consistent appearance.

Burt Lancaster would have been called for roughing the passer on Deborah Kerr ...

The old guns are still killing it tho. DREW BREES SPUN 2 DEFENDERS for a 5 yard scramble.. what in the heck Falcons LBs. They honestly looked scared to knock the lights out of a 37 year old Quarterback past the LOS

Well, there's a little something called "consent" that Ms. Kerr is giving. Kind of a big deal. 

 

*********

 

So let's rank them!

 

Mahomes

Goff

Wentz

Garoppolo

Carr

Bortles

Mayfield/Allen

Prescott

Marriota

Watson

Rosen

Darnold

Trubisky

 

No grade on Jackson yet.

I think Mason Rudolph has a bright future in Pittsburgh when Big Ben calls it quits which is coming soon imo. I didn't like him at all this year especially in the 1st round but he looked really good in preseason, looks like the next heir apparent.

They won't skip a beat. Rudolph is6'5" 240 with plenty of arm. They also brought jw with him which would have been two of my picks had we stood Pat.

Cant argue too much with =this but i bet in a few years Allen is either going to be near the top or the bottom, no middle ground for him.

I think there's plenty of room for middle ground on Allen.  His physicality and arm strength have the potential to keep him as a NFL starter even if he doesn't round off some of the accuracy issues.  He could easily be a rich man's version of Bortles, where some days he's brilliant and some he gets you beat, but just good enough it's hard to find a replacement but just bad enough you don't think he can take you all the way.

 

Some of these other guys like Rosen and Trub just don't physically bring to the table what Allen does.  I don't think Allen is near the boom / bust projection some in the media has presented.

I dont care about what the media says, Allen's physical attributes are throw the roof, might have the strongest arm EVER but he has absolute issues with accuracy and consistency, if he cant fix those he could be at the bottom. If he does, with his physical ability he could easily be the best of them all.

My point was his floor is higher than a guy like Trub or Rosen.  IMO Allen's floor is a fringe starter but a guy who'll be in the league for years. His ability to make some plays with his legs and hit deep balls at least gives him that.   A guy like Rosen or Trub's floor is out of the league in 4 years.

what's funny is through two games ( I know small sample size) his accuracy and consistency have not been the problem.  Drops by WRs getting hit in the bread basket and the hands have been the issue.  He has been putting the ball on the money.

That is true, but he has made a few really bad throws but overall i am greatly relieved about his accuracy thus far, still early of course. He needs a lot of work on short/touch passes.  And PFF stated Allen had the most incompletions for catchable balls in the NFL thus far.  Nice tools they gave the rookie to work with.

And the issue has been diagnosing a play.  He did not see things well in the Chargers game...But in the Vikes he did; I assume that is because of good coaching that focused on a smaller set of plays and asked him to look for specific things in the play and he did well as Minny played into Dabolls hands.

 

That won't be the same against Green Bay. They will test the young QB with something unexpected based on the game film they saw against Minnesota...Hopefully Daboll will be ready.  This season comes to how Daboll prepares Allen to succed!!!

Taking nothing away from Rudolph, but Big Ben is one helluva tough act to follow to say the least. Like the old saying goes, sometimes it's better to be the guy who replaces the guy who replaced the legend.

the important thing is he sees the right things and identifies the right things to do with the football.   He's going to have an errant pass here and there, i'm not worried about that.   Right now these reps are really helping him develop.   If we win 5 more games I'll be surprised.   

 

Just keep in mind Wentz went 7-9 his rookie season with a 79QB rating and threw more interceptions than touchdowns.   Goff's rookie year he looked like a dumpster fire.    

 

If Allen struggles this year IMO it's just part of the learning curve.
